Twitter Lite

Twitter Lite is a storage and bandwidth-efficient version of the app for Twitter. The app enables those with phone plans with expensive data, slow networks, as in some emerging markets, to reduce the data usage associated with the social media network, Twitter. The lightweight client is also useful for those with slower devices, connections or for those who just want to save resources for other apps.

The lite version of the app allows for all the expected functions on Twitter, reading and posting tweets, exchanging direct messages, creating twitter lists, managing your profile and you can still tweet pictures and video. The bandwidth conservation is brought through by way of optimizations, especially for 3G and 2G networks. The app is 70% smaller than the full size version in its space requirements. 

The new efficient client weighs in at a minute .5MB as opposed to the full size app at 33MB and greater. The Twitter Lite client loads a minimum of images in general to limit data usage in general. Automatic playing videos are avoided. The app offers a data saver feature that loads a blurry low resolution preview of images to avoid wasted bandwidth on content the user doesn't need.
